A Jar of Buttons......

I found a 12 x 12 paper pack called Neopolitan by American Crafts in TK Maxx here in the UK, and despite the three large boxes of paper stacks that were shipped over from Florida in January, I bought it. I knew straightaway what I wanted to do with the cute jars printed onto one page..... 

the sentiment says 'a tight squeeze from me to you', all the papers, and the jar are from the pack. I cut the little banner strip from one of the papers

and cut two lids so that I could pop one on with foam pads

I had happy post today, a very regular visitor here and blog friend sent me a lovely card, and a Wild Rose studio stamp (which will be used very soon, it's lovely), just to say how much she enjoys reading my waffle - thank you so much Sandy, you made my day. Sharing your super Loralie lady card for everyone to see..

I missed posting yesterday, felt a bit out of sorts, nothing drastic just a headache and it would be a day when I was flying by the seat of my pants finishing a magazine commission with a deadline later this week. All done and packed up ready to go, text written, supplies list done...breathe

I am trying to get ahead a bit with design team stuff, as I am going down to London to pick up Kiki on Sunday and bringing her home with me for a week, so next week you will be probably looking at her creations instead of mine. Be prepared for a lot of glitter!

Talking of family, here is a photo of little Milo, just four years old and 'graduating' from his nursery before he goes to 'proper' school in September

and here is a cake that my very talented and artistic daughter in law Annabel made, just look at those chocolate roses - I am in awe!

See you tomorrow x


  1. Lovely cards, and yummy looking cake.

  2. Enfys,
    Thanks for the lovely comments and I love the card. I have a jar stamp and am always looking for a way to use it. Glad you liked the card and stamps. I cannot believe your grandson is growing up so fast. He is so cute. Have a great Wednesday.

  3. I love the cards, but that cake is awesome! Please tell Annabel that she has admirers far and wide!

  4. I am not surprised that you bought that paper - it's fabulous!

  5. Mmmm, that cake looks amazing - almost too good to eat (I did say 'almost' LOL).

    Oh doesn't Milo look adorable.

    Hope the headache has completely cleared - I'm sure it's all this stormy weather.

  7. Cute card from you today Enfys and what a lovely card you received from Sandy - it shows how much you're appreciated. Doesn't Milo look grown up in his cap and gown, another 20 years and it will be his Uni version! Fab looking cake, I can see the calories oozing out of those roses. Pat x

    What a handsome young man Milo is turning into ... he looks so grown up in his cap and gown ... and imagine, he is only 4!
